The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice, including for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The city of Gainesville will utilize the 2009 JAG funds for law enforcement programs and technology enhancements that will benefit the police department and enhance their service to the community. The city of Gainesville will purchase digital in-car cameras and a digital in-car camera server. The cameras will expand and enhance crime prevention programming and operational support for the patrol and special tactical units of the police department.
